Reading Plus, Ginny Garrison, M.A., CALT, LDT
I have experience as a certified high school English teacher with a masters degree, as a past journalist, and as a CALT and LDT working for schools with groups of children or, more often recently, as an one-on-one licensed, dyslexia therapist. I have certifications for working with pre-k through high school students. TEA certified me in all levels of teaching, and ALTA certified me in all of the multisensory programs designed to reach out to dyslexics, making the best possible progress. Multi-sensory programs which I have certifications and/or past training in are listed here: BLS, Take Flight, Pre-Take Flight. I also have advanced training through Lindamood-Bell in Visualizing & Verbalizing, Lips, Seeing Stars, and On Cloud Nine ( math). I have branched out with training and workshops in use of the Wilson System, in Neuhaus’ Scientific Spelling, and in the Metacognitive approach to vocabulary and writing. As a past English teacher, and as a CALT, I have worked with hundreds of students in the areas of all forms and purposes of writing, such as expository, persuasive, process, narrative and creative. Recently, I worked two full years with a m.s. student with dyscalculia using manipulatives, a large white board, and the Saxon program.
